NYTimes: Saving U.S. Water and Sewer Systems Would Be Costly

I usually say that by the point where a nytimes article is written
about VC it is already covering well known issues. I'm hoping that's
the case with this water utilities article. It is a major problem. And
one that affects millions in this country. And a problem few see and
few care about.

The right way of doing things is to have a potable water system
separate from the firefighting system. But that is too radical an idea.

From The New York Times:

TOXIC WATERS: Saving U.S. Water and Sewer Systems Would Be Costly

Ruptures in aging water systems cause pollutants to seep into water
supplies, but in many cities residents have protested rate increases
to fix pipes.
